J'Aime Patisserie Cafe - Desserts

J’Aime Patisserie Cafe – 24 Oct 2016

I stopped by for a quick breakfast on the go. I’m a little too eager first thing in the morning for the dessert cabinet isn’t fully stocked and I decide I need something less sweet for breakfast. Examining the quiches and pies, the chicken and mushroom quiche fitted the bill. Nicely warmed, gooey cheese, soft mushroom and tender chicken, this was just what I needed. After my client meeting I had to make a return stop for morning tea before heading back to the city. Plenty to enjoy, I selected several eclairs, petit fours, and some macaroons. I like the choux pastry of the eclairs, particularly the coffee and chocolate varieties. And those macarrons are so yum! If you’re at the Subiaco train station or at Woolworths popping in for shopping at the Subiaco Square, you have no excuse not to indulge in the delicious pastry items both sweet and savoury.


Little Matcha Girl - Display Cabinet

Little Matcha Girl – 23 Oct 2016

Little Matcha Girl is a cafe on Preston St just past the Cygnet movie theatre. With seating inside and out, you can grab a coffee or drool over their dessert creations featuring matcha, the imported green tea powder straight from a farm in Kyoto, Japan. Whilst travelling through Japan matcha features in many desserts and carries a delicious flavour. My first choice was the matcha opera gateau with 7 layers. The flavours are tasty, though a little heavy with the chocolate. Just needs a little more of a balance and a lightness but very enjoyable. The other creation for my takeaway order was the matcha mousse. Oh wow! This blew me away. What an absolutely delicious array of matcha flavours! This has a delicious moist matcha sponge on the base, a matcha mousse which is light and airy and carrying a very authentic matcha flavour, and the matcha cream quinelle which is so yum. Amazing! With IGA just down the road there is no excuse not to swing by. Make sure it’s on your shopping list!


Honey Creme - Bacon with Chocolate Ice Cream Cup

Honey Creme – 14 Sep 2016

I had walked past Honey Creme on my way to work and was wondering what this place was. An international chain originating in South Korea and Taiwan, Perth is the first store for their Australian venture. I made a visit during my lunch break to try some of their premium soft serve ice cream. Available in a cone or cup, there’s plenty of options from the menu to choose from. I selected the unusual sounding Bacon with Chocolate. Bacon goes with anything right? A bit steep in price but what isn’t expensive these days? Delicious creamy soft serve with a very slight honey flavour, the chocolate and subtle touch of saltiness from the bacon balances out any richness. I like the crunch of the bacon bits too. Yum! Screw winter, ice cream is good in any weather!


Whisk Creamery - Caramel Sandwich

Whisk Creamery – 15 Aug 2015

The desserts are a bit pricey but that’s the price you pay for indulgence. The caramel sandwich is delicious, a lovely cronut sandwiching the smooth creamy salted caramel gelato which goes down a treat. The whipped cream with salted caramel sauce is delicious and the dessert, while filling, is not sickening or dominated by too much caramel. I can see this being a hit in summer but any weather is good for gelato, right?

Koko Black - Mango and Vanilla Ice Cream Spectacula

Koko Black – 29 Jan 2015

Koko Black’s new Summer Oasis range introduces patrons to two new items – salted caramel iced chocolate and, mango and vanilla ice cream spectacular. Today I returned to try the latter after enjoying the former last week. A very tasty, vanilla flecked ice cream combines superbly with the delicious refreshing mango coulis. The crunch provided by the caramelised wafer on top of the ice cream and the crunch of the coconut crumble at the base of the glass add different textures, flavours, and levels of sweetness to make this an excellent dessert for summer. I really enjoyed it.


Koko Black - Salted Caramel Iced Chocolate

Koko Black – 22 Jan 2015

Koko Black’s new Summer Oasis range introduces patrons to two new items – salted caramel iced chocolate and, mango and vanilla ice cream spectacular. Tough choice but I went with the former. The first suck gives a bitter aftertaste, with high cocoa content chocolate used in making the iced hot chocolate. This is counteracted with the creamy vanilla ice cream, sweeter chocolate flakes, and of course, the caramel. It’s a very satisfying and decadent dessert that is also very filling. Probably for the price of a milkshake elsewhere, you can enjoy this piece of oasis in summer. I loved it and was just what I needed.
